Who Are We, and Why Do We Need Your Help?

Hey there! I'm Eric Patton, the lead developer and Co-CEO of Stasis Soft. My brother and I, along with our friend, started Stasis Soft back in 2012 to develop games. Not just any games, good games. We toyed around with several ideas over the years, and we decided to start working on Aegis as our launch title.

We've spent years writing out the story & lore, working out the gameplay, and deciding on art and music styles. In total, we've put together roughly 815 pages worth of data (single spaced 12 point) in our online game design documents. We've got details for every single animation, item, and skill so that anyone who works on the game with us will be able to use it as a reference to do their part. Can you tell that we're passionate about what we do?

So why do we need your help? Well, even though we've got everything planned out, we only have programmers and sound designers between me, my brother Alex, and our friend Peter. We don't have an artist who can animate our main character, enemies, and bosses in the core team, so we've had to contract out and hire an artist.

I saved up enough money since 2012 to fund our development for one full year, and I quit my job in February of 2016 to start. One year later, and we're over halfway through with the game's development! The price of art has definitely been our biggest cost, but we got amazing quality from the cost.

If we're going to continue development of Aegis and finish it, we're going to need funding. Pledging here will help offset the costs of art and will ensure that I can devote all of my attention and time to the development of Aegis.

What Is Aegis?

Aegis: Innocence is a 2D Platformer Action RPG with a heavy focus on challenging gameplay, rich combat, and exploration. You play as a teddy bear who fights nightmares to protect your human. When the nightmares drain your human's life energy, you must travel to their world, fighting your way through hordes of enemies to retrieve what was stolen and set things right.
